Scavenger Hunt Sunday

2 Aug

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are: low angle, homemade, light, waiting, and a chore.

A chore:  Every day, I do chores on the farm.  One of those chores is milking twice a day.  My newest milking doe is Dolly; although, she’s not actually new to milking.  The last time I milked her was five years ago, and I only did it a few times because she had a sore on her teat from one of her babies gnawing instead of sucking.  Well, she still has scar tissue from that injury. She has been amazing to milk though!

Waiting:  The hay wagon was parked up north waiting its turn to be pulled to the barn for unloading. It makes me chuckle to see it has its own little mini-pasture on top.

Light:  I like the rim light that emphasizes Llenny’s long lashes and fuzzy ears.



Homemade:  My garden is producing!  That means a lunch of homemade zucchini patties with a homemade sauce and a homegrown tomato sandwich on my homemade bread left over from the market.


Low angle:  When your subject is up in the rafters, you have to shoot from a low angle.  Not surprisingly, when I went out to the barn the next day, this nest of barn swallows was empty.

      Dolly is quite a character. I think that’s a requirement for milking does. Glad you’re enjoying your breads.

    Those Swallow babies are really cute. I love the lighting in the shot of Llenny. And Dolly is a doll.

      Dolly is amazing! She’s definitely a natural milking doe.

    That sandwich looks delicious!!
    I also love the light hitting Llenny! He’s so beautiful.

      Thanks. Llenny looks much better now that his wool is growing out a little.

    Very nice pictures!! I especially like the ones of Dolly and Llenny and the swallow babies. I guess about the only thing in your sandwich that you didn’t make in the cheese, right? It looks yummy!

      Dolly is a dear! She likes the camera too. I don’t do Swiss cheese, but I would love to try sometime.

    What big eyes the barn swallows have. 🙂 Llenny does have a set of eyelashes to covet! Dolly’s a pretty girl. It’s probably nice to have a loaf of bread to bring home for yourself sometimes. Yummy fresh garden produce.

      Llamas’ eyelashes are amazing! Dolly really is a sweet, funny girl. I’m not complaining when I have leftovers from the market. I’d be happy to have a freezer full by the end of the markets.
